Themes: Family stories/ Series
Sage, the middle sister in the family, is delighted when she is detailed off to take the class toy bear, Mr Floppy Ribbon home for an over-nighter. However, when she realises that with this comes responsibility and especially the task of having to write a report about the visit, it is lucky she has her big sister Saffron to turn to.
It was time Sage (the middle sister in the family) had her own story as she has been there waiting, a little noisily, in the wings, in the three other tiles in this absolutely charming series about a most unique and quirky family.

A great read aloud to a small group – small because half the fun is in the writer’s illustrations that need to be seen as you are hearing the story. Easy to read and extra large print make this very suitable for emerging readers.
